STEVE Claridge has defended Millwall's record on racism after Bolton striker Marvin Sordell alleged he and several teammates were subjected to abuse at The Den.

The Football Association have confirmed they will investigate claims that Darren Bratley, Benik Afobe and Lee Chung-Yong "had all sorts of things" said to them while they were warming up during Saturday's match.

But Claridge says isolated incidents such as this should not overshadow the Lions' efforts to tackle racism down the years.

"There is no other club that has worked buy allegra uk harder within the community to eradicate this sort of thing," he said, speaking on the Football League Show.

"They'll be disappointed that one or two fans – and it won't have been any more than that – have crossed the line.

"I spent two-and-a-half years there and this is not a racist club. That's the one thing you have to identify.

"Over the years there have been small elements that have maybe crossed the line. Hopefully, if this did happen on Saturday, it won't happen again."
